Amazon's Alexa Aire

This is a self flying robot for your home and it's named Aire. It has a built in microphone and speaker. What does it do?

Aire can provide security when you are away. Take live video and photos on command. It's integrated with Amazon Alexa so it can respond to voice commands. It uses sonar sensors to fly safely in your home. It can be controlled from anywhere in the world. The blades are covered which also adds safety but these blades also produce noise.

"It sounds a bit like a vacuum cleaner or hair dryer, instead of that mosquito in your ear sound you get from most drones" - Paul Miller, The Verge

Aire will retail for $1,499 but is on Kickstarter for $749. Would you want a flying friend in your home?
